Product Overview

Mustang Survival engineered the Elite Inflatable Life Jacket for serious boaters with a design that stays put at high speeds.

Built with a revolutionary 3-D chassis design, the Elite is aerodynamic and reduces drag at high speeds. With a comfortable fit, this inflatable life jacket turns unconscious wearer’s face up and effectively keeps your head above water.

Automatic Inflatable

Designed with Hydrostatic Inflator Technology (HIT™), the Elite only inflates when submerged in water.  This feature minimizes the risk of accidental inflation and avoids premature inflation due to rain or ocean spray. You will want to visually inspect your life jacket for leaks or tears every few months and service the automatic inflator yearly. Rearm your life jacket with Mustang Survival’s Elite Rearming Kit (sold separately). 


Lightweight, breathable, and aerodynamic features make this life jacket comfortable and functional.  The wide shoulder system design sits on your shoulders, away from your neck eliminating neck fatigue.  A mesh liner on the back wicks away moisture and enhances breathability so you won’t be hindered by a soggy, uncomfortable life jacket.  Finally, the 3D chassis design gives the Elite a structural framework that won’t hinder your speed or movement for maximum comfort during long days on the water.

Includes CO2 Cartridge
